Second Grade Family Program: “The Amazing Trip Around Israel”

On October 20th, 2012 the second grade students and their paresnt were treated to an immersion into Israeli culture.  The focus of this morning was to help deepen the connection of the children and their parents to the land, people and history of Israel by bringing some of the experiences of traveling to Israel to the students and their families. Parents and children will travel across the land of Israel using a large scale map, join in traditional Israeli dancing, sing Israeli music, help recreate the Wall in Jerusalem, learn Israeli words, earn shekels, and have the opportunity to shop and eat at a traditional Israeli shuk.
